    I tried to call him the other day,
    but my message i could not relay,
    to the voice mail,
    that i try every day to sway..
    to return my call one day...
    left it open like a wound,
    call me today,
    make it soon..
    next week around noon,
    just call me..
    make me swoon..
    see..
    he didnt even hit it...
    but decided he was gunna quit it..
    runnin from a ghost without a shadow..
    As I haunted his dreams,
    and dark corners,
    this man who aint ready for love,
    aint ready for me,
    Cause i guess..
    I must accept..
    that..
    "a brother wants to play"
    so immma let him have his way..
    since he dont like the way..
    i leave him feeling warm..
    and fuzzy..
    with images of me and him..
    together..
    Aint no kitty like new kitty.
    and he know that he aint gettin my kitty..
    until he decides to put down the joystick,
    cause i dotn liek them parker brothers,
    milton bradley eitha..
    I want a brother who dont mind..
    havin "Renee fever"
    But..
    as Sista Sonnee said..
    "A brother want to play!"



    "Im on an emotional rollercoaster,
    loving you aint nothing healthy..
    loving you was never good to me..
    but I cant get off!"
    -Vivian Green


    **Thanks A.Mae.S
    thanks for seeing,
    the pain..
    that so many of us endure..
    thanks for bringing a smile.. n
    being the temporary cure!
    :heart:

    Oh….. my sweet Popo
    You see…. it’s his lost and your gain
    After all.... do you really wanna play those games
    I know sis what you feel is real
    And have no fear one day for him… it will be revealed
    See what he just don’t understand
    True love is hard to find and Trust
    You are one of a kind
    Sis you are a very precious jewel
    That should not be handled by someone
    Who wants to fool…
    So sis hold you head up high….
    And if you need cry… cry
    But once you are done cryin
    Climb down off that emotional roller coaster
    wash all that off
    make some adjustments
    buy a new outfit... shoes included
    have a nice lunch
    step high and know that your
    KING is waitin for his QUEEN
    :heart:

    My Version Sista Poetic...
    He says...
    It's okay to like me
    I'm a good guy.
    You found yourself
    a good guy.
    (I'm thinking.. a good guy...
    don't make you.. MY MAN)
    I know it took you off guard
    you like my alternate persona
    the one i am when we're out
    amongst people who don't know
    that we date
    (why are we keeping this
    a secret anyway)
    but you really feeling me as a man
    it's okay to like me
    just accept that you are
    really feeling me
    (i know this joka knows that
    I LOVE HIM. why don't he
    acknowledge it and shoot
    me down so that i
    can cut my loses and
    WALK AWAY)
    i don't want to hurt you
    just accept your feelings
    stop trying to fight it
    and then it'll be okay...
    (notice he didn't say...
    We'll be okay)
    I say...
    It'll be okay for you
    Never ONCE did you speak on
    how YOU felt about ME
    rather you poppin off
    at the mouth of how I
    should accept MY FEELINGS
    for you.. well i'm here to tell you...
    forget you... i'm almost fed up
    as Brotha Kem told me...
    "die.. mofo... die"
    nah.. really it ain't that serious
    but i wish i could let you go
    i wish i could stop falling for you
    i may as well
    cut the heart from my chest
    cause i can't give you up
    instead i'm doomed to sit
    sit here and wait for
    one of us to come to our
    SENSES
    until I SAY.. it's time to
    call it quits!
    You'll never say it
    cause i'm your good girl
    in the backgroud
    soon to be in the HIS
    foreground!

    HOLLA!​
